Emirates, the world’s largest international airline, has announced plans to introduce a temporary five times weekly service to London Heathrow from Dubai. Operated by its Boeing 777 fleet, this will supplement existing flight services into Heathrow.

Slated to commence on October 31, 2023, and extending through to March 30, 2024, this added service is strategically timed to cater to the heightened travel demands of the winter season, enhancing travel choices for customers.

Responding to Market Demand


With an established presence at London Heathrow featuring six daily A380 flights, Emirates is poised to further enrich its offerings by introducing this supplementary flight.

Operational on Tuesdays, Wednesdays, Thursdays, Fridays, and Saturdays, the new flight will be facilitated by Emirates’ renowned Boeing 777-300ER aircraft, configured to offer a seamless three-class experience encompassing First, Business, and Economy classes.

Flight Schedule


Emirates’ flight EK41 is slated to embark from Dubai at 13:20hrs, culminating in its arrival at London Heathrow at 17:20hrs local time.

The return leg, EK42, is programmed to take off from London Heathrow at 20:15hrs, reaching Dubai at 07:15hrs local time the subsequent day. This thoughtfully designed schedule considers traveler preferences and ensures optimal convenience.
